It’s that time of year again, in Marin. Time for the Marin County Fair, through Sunday.
The Marin Independent has this preview for you.

That’s a very strange photo of the coreopsis to use, what with the caption talking about the large daisy flowers and the picture showing all the dead blooms. Someone should deadhead them. But we do like us some C. gigantea, the California native version of the common midwestern perennial. It’s originally from the Channel Islands, but has spread along the Southern California coast. It’s a good choice for a “Dr. Seuss Garden” since everyone around here calls it the Dr. Seuss plant.
So go, to Marin, that is.
